Desktop Blogging

From Habari Project

Jump to: navigation, search

Many clients exist to allow you to edit your blog and post new content from your desktop without having to interact with the admin interface. They also provide a backup of your posts in case you have a server problem. Habari supports Atom Publishing Protocol by default, and with a MetaWeblog plugin, most desktop blogging clients should be able to post to Habari. The XMLRPC entry point should be specified as 'http://<site>/atom' for Atompub clients and 'http://<site>/xmlrpc/' for Metaweblog.

Consult the following chart to determine which clients will work best.
